Deana: FREE row quilt QAL coming in July!

Hello to all of my quilt friends in blogland!  Thank you for all of your comments, encouragement, and support through the years.

The Quilter's Garden Mystery Row project was such a success that I am going to host another one that is similar.  This time it won't be much of a mystery.  I need to recreate pdf patterns for the three row quilts shown below and need your encouragement to get them done.  Let me know if you are interested in making one of them and which one or which ones (plural) you want to make.  Just leave a comment or shoot me an email.  I will choose the group "favorite" or possibly two of them for the FREE QAL.  


1.  Participants will be required to make at least one block from the pattern each month.

2.  Participants will have to post a picture of the finished block to my DODmystery blog OR email me a picture for me to post for them.

3.  If a block is made by midnight the last day of the month, the participant will get the next month's pattern for free.  If not, they will have an unfinished quilt or will have to purchase the pattern in my Craftsy or Etsy shop.

4.  Late comers will be welcome, but they will have to purchase any patterns they have missed.  The pattern is free ONLY for the month it is hosted.

SPECIAL NOTE:  I reserve the right to change some of the rows from the photos shown.  Some rows may be replaced with patterns that I feel are cuter or simpler to make.  There are a couple that need some improvements.

Don't care for row quilts?  That is ok.  You are only required to make the month's block.  You can do anything with it you wish.

That's it!  This time we are not swapping, so make your quilt any colors you want.

Here are your choices:

Spring Row Quilt

Autumn Row Quilt

Americana Row Quilt

I am linking up today with:

Needle and Thread Thursday


Can I get a Whoop Whoop?

Crazy Mom Quilts

Fabric Frenzy Friday

Deana: Debating...

I have really been debating as to whether or not to set goals for May.  My daughter gets married May 29th and I'm not really sure how stressed I will be.  After much pondering, I have decided to set a few and not get upset with myself if they don't get done.

#1.  Quilt & bind my blue Hexagon Pleasure Quilt.  This was last month's goal that did not get completed but I did make some progress.

#2.  Make one more table cloth for the book signing table at the wedding.  Here is a photo of the table cloths that are finished.  I will be doing another charcoal grey one.

#3.  Make 4 flowering snowball blocks.

#4.  Piece the next top on my list in the 2015 UFO Challenge.  This month the number 12 came up and mine is a mystery quilt from annual meeting many many years ago.  It is time to get this baby out and see what it is going to be.  I'm pretty sure it is a wall sized quilt, so that is a good thing for a busy month.

#5  Take out one side of the binding and add a hanging sleeve for this quilt.  My daughter wants to hang this one at the wedding.  

#6  I try to bind a quilt every month and I found this quilt I made several years ago with half of the binding not finished.  It is a twin size so it should go pretty fast.  It is also one I made for my daughter and I thought she should take it with her.

I have to wonder how long this quilt will last.  I made it from a bag of scraps someone gave me.  It is not made from high quality quilt shop fabric.

April Goal Follow-Up

Here is the list of goals I set the first of April:

#1.  Finish up my last two tutorials for the Shimmer Braid QAL.  You can find the previous tutorials for FREE at the links below.

Month 1
Month 2
Month 3
Month 4
Final Month 5 will release on Tuesday, May 12th at this link.

You can find the FREE tutorials at Fort Worth Fabric Studio's blog on the 10th of each month.  Here is a link to the 2nd tutorial which will also link you to the first.

#2 Baste a quilt top for quilting.  It will be the Shimmer Braid quilt this month.


#3 Bind a Quilt.  This month I want it to be my red flowers quilt.  This one was organized by my sister for our family round robin.  I love it and I love that my mom and sisters all helped to make it.


#4 Finish a Quilt Top for the 2015 UFO challenge. April is #8.  I made a list of twelve projects for the year and numbered them.  The challenge selects a number on the first Monday of each month to indicate which one we will do.  I Love this quilt and an anxious to get it done!


#5 Quilt and bind my first Hexagon Pleasure quilt.

Not done, but I did make a lot of progress...

#6 Make at least one block for the StashBee.  Here is a photo of the blocks we are making this month.  Here is a link to Shari's tutorial.

#7  I would also like to get my Dorinda Quilt quilted.  It is hand quilting so this may be a goal that is out of my reach, but I am putting it on the list anyway.  It is all done except for the last border.

I did not even get this one on the frames but my mom wants to finish the quilting for me in trade for some work on her horse quilt.  Basically, this quilt is done as far as what I will do it other than the binding.  

#8 Make hay bail coverings for my daughter's wedding.

#9 Hem table cloths for my daughter's wedding.
